The Materialise arm comes in two halves: the underside is highly realistic, expertly crafted in skin-like-silicone, to represent Kelly’s physical body; the upper half is designed with interchangeable sections, each relating to different emotional and spiritual aspects of her personality.

The two halves create a visual connection between the physical and metaphysical.

The arm was created by a combination of 3D printing, CNC routing, hand carving and sculpting, using steel, rock, earth, wood, moss, oil, cork, wool, bronze, rhodium and gold. 

The upper elements attach with magnets
